Round and round we go
You see this street is A cassette
Where B repeats exactly what we know the other side's just said

We ride upon a track 
that keeps the cycle of our choices
rolling overtop the voices of the ones we dispossess 

I just wanna do right by you

Lord of hosts let down your son
to set the table where we finally
eat the bread beside the ones we’ve
dragged beneath our tyres 

We’re gonna need the wine to wash the truth down
That there's nothing we can do
to fix it even if we set ourselves on fire 

I just wanna do right by you

Holy ember burn so bright
Touch my mouth put hate to flight
Kiss away my need to prove

Cause I just wanna do right by you

Lord of ages
we’ve just begun
to face the music
to face the sun
Lord of hearts
the time has come
not our choosing 
but theirs be done

I’ve done so much wrong by you
